German discounter Lidl pulls back crayfish soup on account of food poisoning apprehension. Lidl is reportedly recalling its ‘Fancy Crayfish Soup with Saffron’ because of the likely presence of hazardous bacteria that causes food poisoning.
The soup has been recalled from its Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland stores as a safety measure due to the possible occurrence of Clostridium species. Lidl said in a recall notification that during in-house testing, microbiological variations from the norm were recognized for this item. According to the notification, the company chose to recall the product as a health risk cannot be excluded.
On account of the health danger that could possibly be happen, customers are advised not to use the affected product. No different varieties of soup from this maker are affected. The product can be returned in all Lidl stores for a full discount. Lidl has also apologized to the customers who bought the product. The soup is sold in 570ml pockets. All best before dates and all batch numbers are reviewed.
Meanwhile the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said Lidl is reviewing all batches and ‘best before’ dates of its “Deluxe” Crayfish Soup with Saffron from stores in Northern Ireland as a preliminary measure as a result of the possible vicinity of Clostridium species. The security of the item can’t be demonstrated.
